I'm returning to running after a lapse of two years combined with middle age, three young kids and too much curry and beer. Excuses over, here's the problem...
I'm 6'2" and currently weight 16 stone. I'm back on diet that has previously worked well for me (I shed two stone and did the 2004 FLM in 3:44).I've got a new pair of shoes and started my distances gradually although when I start to run I get quite a bit of pain in my lower back which me thinks is due to bad posture (beer belly sticking out)and excess weight.I'm sorting out the weight bit, can anyone help me with ideas for my back? I really want to run and get back to my previous form but the pain is slowing me up and getting me down!
